Adventist Health makes Becker’s “10 largest nonprofit hospital systems” list

Awards & Recognition

We are happy to share that Adventist Health has made Becker’s “10 largest nonprofit hospital systems” list, not once, but twice! Take a look at the article below or view it in all it's entirety via BeckersHospitalReview.com.



Here are 10 of the largest nonprofit hospital systems in the U.S., based on number of short-term, acute-care hospitals.

The list is based on data from the American Hospital Directory, which contains information from hospital cost reports submitted to CMS. Data was accessed June 25, 2015. Hospital cost reports are submitted to fiscal intermediaries about three months after the end of a hospital's fiscal year, and the most common fiscal year ending dates are Dec. 31, June 30 and Sept. 30.  

Systems are listed in descending order based on the number of acute-care hospitals. The company rankings total 10, although the list includes ties, which means there are more than 10 individual systems listed.
